Subject: 6.0517  Q: On-line STC
Comment:        RE: SHK 6.0517  Q: On-line STC
 
In response to Naomi Liebler who asked about on-line access to STC:  the STC is
part of a large database on RLIN (the Research Library Network) that includes
WING and ESTC as well.  The whole thing is now known as ESTC (English
Short-Title Catalog) and is eminently searchable by author, title, and even
date and place of imprint, printer's names, etc.  Many universities now offer
RLIN searching as part of the package available to faculty and students via
their local OPAC system.  RLIN accounts themselves are institutional and
expensive, but if you can hook into a university that offers this service (even
at a fee) it would be worthwhile.  Among other things, it's a quicky way to
find out the reel numbers of books microfilmed by UMI for their STC and WING
projects.

Comment:        Re: SHK 6.0517  Q: On-line STC
 
Concerning the STC on line, I know that it's available through RLIN libraries,
and I've been told that individuals can subscribe, paying so much per search.
Unfortunately, I do not have the address at hand -- and I can't remember where
I filed it.  As I recall, I got the information through a discussion on FICINO.
Can anyone help Naomi further?
 
As you may guess, a very helpful librarian (Rosemary Franklin) does my searches
for me.
 
Yours, Bill Godshalk

Don Foster mentions the Shaxicon.  How and where does one subscribe to this?
It sounds very useful.  Thanks in advance

If I remember correctly, "Prospero's Books" was a version of the Tempest.  It
starred Sir John Gielgud and was directed by Peter Greenway (sp?), who also did
"The Cook, the thief, His Wife, and Her Lover".  A rather controversial
director who did the movie in the same visual style as "The Cook...".  I found
it rather interesting, especially once I realized what it was.

p.s. This is the first time I have responded to a subject on here, so I should
probably say "howdy".  I do enjoy the information that comes through here,
especially the moderated tone after 6 months in the "Politics" discussion list.
Bravo to one and all for an excellent list.
